Wow, It's been so long!

Sorry everybody (or should I say anybody who happens to still keep an eye on this blog).  I knew it had been a while since I posted but really can't believe I've not been on here since January!

Well what can I say.  Life has been busy.  We've just celebrated my youngest's 17th Birthday along with her great grandmother's 100th Birthday, such a stunning achievement and couldn't be allowed to go past without quite a bit of celebration.

As far as stitching is concerned I've only been working on Mad Queen Alice.  She is definitely a long term project but I have today finished page 5.  Just page 6 to go and then that's the first row complete.

I do go through my box of stitchy things and look at the other projects, such as the Chinese Garden Mandala and think I really should get back to them but Alice just keeps calling me.  I so want to see her face start to appear which might happen on page 8 or maybe 9.  I feel like it's so close but really with a HAED it's ages away I just don't want to put her down in case I never get the momentum to pick her back up again.

Anyway, I'll try not to leave it so long next time (yeah - we've heard that one before!!).

Happy stitching.

Great work on Alice! I love how sharp the colours are coming out against the black.
